Lambeau Field, home of Green Bay Packers, gets a lighting makeover by Jackson manufacturer

JACKSON, MI – Several hundred lights that will shine at the home of the Green Bay Packers are being manufactured and delivered from Jackson.

Full Spectrum Solutions’ subsidiary EverLast Lighting, which specializes in energy-efficient lighting for roadways, parking structures and other facilities, will be installing lighting at Lambeau Field this winter and could save the stadium 60 percent on energy usage.

“It’s amazing, especially for us being a Jackson company,” EverLast Lighting spokesman Kyle Leighton said about the project. “It makes us feel positive about what is to come.”

The company, headquartered at 2021 Wellworth Ave., were chosen for the $300,000 job to meet the stadium’s specific building codes and lower maintenance costs.

As part of the building code, the lighting fixtures have to be able to turn on within 10 seconds in the event of an outage. Also, the lighting from EverLast has a 100,000-hour lifetime.

The company has already installed 71 200-watt high bay fixtures to supplement existing lighting inside the newly renovated facility.

Full Spectrum Solutions has been involved in some high-scale projects across the state in the past year and has launched a campaign to promote energy efficiency and foster more partnerships with other Michigan-based companies.

The company recently worked with the University of Michigan to install energy-efficient lights at the university's Player Development Center. Fifty-six induction high bay fixtures manufactured by the Jackson company were installed during construction of the 57,000-square-foot building.

The Player Development Center is attached to Crisler Center, where Michigan plays home basketball games.

In November, it was announced that about 3,000 energy-efficient light fixtures from Full Spectrum Solutions had been installed at Detroit's Cobo Center as part of a federally funded energy-saving program. The new lights are expected to save the center $340,000 a year.

In addition, the staff at Full Spectrum Solutions has grown from about 20 to 50 people in the past three years, and the company will continue to grow.

Leighton said the company is excited about future projects that could come after the Lambeau Field project.

“Everything always snowballs when doing a large project like that,” he said.
